If you'd like a rewarding opportunity that can fit around your life, consider becoming one of our Shared Lives carers.

We’re currently looking for carers to join our Shared Lives service in Blackpool, which supports vulnerable adults with various needs. Many people who offer their time and support are already working in a caring or nursing role, so this opportunity may be perfectly suited to you.

If you’re willing to share your time, be it during the day, overnight or over a longer-term period of time, we’d love to hear from you.

We’re recruiting now!


A Shared Lives carer works with people who need support due to disability age or illness.  This will involve working in the community, in the service user’s home and in the carer’s own home.

  • Short-term and longer-term support opportunities
  • Payment to cover some of your time and expenses
  • FREE training and dedicated support
  • Trusted council-provided service

How to apply
Our carers come from many backgrounds and qualifications or experience aren’t required – just the right attitude and a willingness to share your life with another person. You’ll get to choose each other – we’ll match carers with the people in need and vice versa.

If you are enthusiastic, patient, helpful and want to make a difference, please visit www.blackpool.gov.uk/SharedLives
